 Sorry to throw this in - but does anyone have any experience with

 I have BackupExec running, on a tape library Win2k box, and I have my
file-server a FreeBSD 5.2.1 machine running Samba 2.2.8a.
 I'm still learning BSD so please bear with my possibly stupid
question... Why does the Win2k box always backup the full share, even
though I have differential backup selected?

One guess: you haven't configured Samba to map the Windows permission bits to Unix permission bits. So the backup can't use the archive bits to include only files that have changed.
